Warcraft 3 Patch 1.30.2 Opinion – Good or Not?

Opinion about WC3 Patch 1.30.2What do you think of Patch 1.30.2 for Warcraft 3 The Frozen Throne and Reign of Chaos? Yes it is bad that we got some big problems now, and yes it is bullshit that you can not play like before, but it has a reason. I’ve seen so many people complaining about the stuff Blizzard is doing, just because they can’t do something just right now.
Guys you have to see the bigger path and to accept the new changes for a great new game!

This is just the beginning…

right click the game icon on your desktop go to properties. After the ”C:/Programfiles/Warcraft3′ make 1 space bar and add the line -nativefullscr

Should look like this ”C:/Programfiles/Warcraft3” -nativefullscr
Then you can change the resolution
